Solidarity rally with York & U of T workers

Saturday, March 21, 2015 - 17:00

Demand a quality education for all!

Why: Better public funding for an accessible education and good working conditions in universities

Where: Dundas Square (TTC: Dundas)

When: Saturday, March 21 at 1:00 p.m. (march will begin at 1:30 p.m.)

All undergraduates and Toronto residents are invited to march in solidarity with teaching assistants (TAs), Course Instructors (CIs) and graduate assistants (GAs) from York University and the University of Toronto.

 TAs, CIs and GAs are not only workers, but also graduate students. There are several demands being made by unions in both universities, and they all come down to providing an equitable, accessible and affordable learning and working experience.

This solidarity rally aims to defend the accessibility of graduate studies, but also to demand better public funding of universities for all students. This means that  tuition fees should also be lower for all students, including for undergraduates.

Please spread the word!

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
